Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
The issues on appeal are:
I. Did the trial Court erred in ruling that Davis' expert could not refer to or base his opinion on previously redacted and received records from the Mayo Clinic.
II. Did the trial Court err in admitting evidence that Davis had been terminated from employment many years before while excluding evidence of Defendant Hershberger's licensure?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
1. Whether the trial court correctly admitted evidence that was received without objection by Davis' counsel, therefore waiving the issue on appeal.
2. Whether the trial court incorrectly denied Dr. Hershberger's Rule 50 motions when the evidence irrefutably showed any alleged delay in diagnosis did not proximately cause Davis' amputation.

Statement of Issues of Killu & Corporate Defendants
I. Do the evidentiary rulings Davis claims as error entitle him to a new trial?
II. Did the trial court err in not granting Dr. Killu's motions for judgment as a matter of law?
